Girls crafting on the back porch – music and giggles!





A sunflower that sprung up out of the grass because of birdseed that fell!






New visitors to our pond





Barefootin’ –  my preferred natural state:)





a wonderfully refreshing mid afternoon nap





a clean bathroom – it’s the little things!





a little green visitor on St. Francis – how appropriate





sharing a bag of “Boom Chick a Pop” non GMO popcorn with my little man




a beautiful bud – the hope of things to come





Lord, it’s been a good day.  Thank you so much for these smiles and for a renewed sense of well-being and “positivity.”  Thank you for hair bands that keep my straggly mess (AKA my hair) out of my face; for safe travel this morning; for dental floss; for the spontaneous hug from my (teenage) daughter; for the Hershey kisses I found when I went looking for scissors; for the cooling afternoon rain shower; for the melodic sound of the wind chimes; the sweet smell of mint from the garden; for refreshing mint, green tea…

God, You are an awesome God!

About danardoyle

I am a Catholic, working wife and mother. I have three children ages 14, 20 and 27. I am extremely busy, as you can imagine. I aim each and every day to put God first in my life, to teach my children the Faith, to be a supportive spouse, keep the house in order, and do my job outside of the home well, too. That's an impossible task - without Divine intervention! Here, I hope to share my triumphs and struggles with other working moms in the same boat. I will share the tools I have discovered to making it all work - most days!
